Tatiana’s story

Tatiana's story of homelessness and poverty is not uncommon in the UK where four million children miss such necessities as three meals a day or adequate clothing.

Around a third of our work focuses on the alleviation of poverty. We provide advice on housing, access to training and employment, and help young people learn the skills to budget and have financial security in the future.
